Title Safe + Sound Week and EHS Resources to Protect Workers in California
Introduction LA Testing offers industrial hygiene and environmental, health and safety (EHS) testing services, sampling supplies, monitoring instruments and personal protective equipment to safeguard workers and help companies with regulatory compliance.

Huntington Beach, California, August 8, 2023

For 2023, Safe + Sound Week takes place in California and across the nation from August 7th through the 13th. The annual week of recognition has been described by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) as a nationwide event to raise awareness and understanding of the value of safety and health programs to systematically find and fix hazards in the workplace.

Safe Workplaces Are Sound Businesses is the theme for this year’s event. A safe work environment is critically important because although the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) states that the rate of worker deaths and reported injuries in the United States has decreased over the past several decades, thousands of workers are still killed on the job and millions more suffer job-related injuries or illnesses each year.

OSHA promotes the fact that safety and health programs help businesses:

  • Prevent workplace injuries and illnesses
  • Improve compliance with laws and regulations
  • Reduce costs, including significant reductions in workers' compensation premiums
  • Engage workers
  • Enhance social responsibility goals
  • Increase productivity and enhance overall business operations

“Successful environmental, health and safety programs can proactively identify and manage workplace hazards before they cause an injury or illness,” said Michael Chapman, Laboratory Manager of LA Testing’s Huntington Beach facility. “LA Testing proudly supports the efforts of Safe + Sound Week with industrial hygiene and EHS testing services for chemical, microbial, and radiological hazards at our California laboratories all year long. We also provide sampling supplies, easy-to-use test kits, monitoring instruments, personal protective equipment, and other health and safety resources.”
